Aldrich, Michele L., Comp.; And Others
Presented is a description of over 300 projects designed to increase the numbers and status of women in science, engineering, and mathematics training and careers. Each project description begins with a heading which conveys standardized data about the program in a condensed form. The headings are explained on the inside front cover of this text. A narrative paragraph details the recruitment strategies, goals, methods, and insights of the project. Each paragraph closes with citations of any publications, films, or tapes created during the program, followed by the name, address, and telephone number of someone knowledgeable about the project. The projects are arranged by grade level, and alphabetically by program title within levels. When a project crosses more than one level, it is listed with the earliest applicable grade. The title page of each section cross-references relevant projects in other sections. Indices in the back of the document list the states in which the projects took place, the disciplines they covered, sponsoring institutions, and their funding agencies. (MP)
